    "I watched a snail crawl along the edge of an oxblood sheath. This is my dream; this is my nightmare."

    The Oxblood sheath debate, let's hear it.

    I'm all ears, but it's gonna take some convincing......

    I dunno, I've had a few really snazzy pair of shoes in oxblood. One wingtip solid oxblood color, and one glossy leather mottled color oxblood and black.

    I don't mind burgundy leather but prefer brown/tan/natural colors more. Black leather too, depending on the knife handle.

    That must be why I don't like it, it's not a natural color.

    It's funny because maroon is my favorite color for micarta, just not leather.

    Hmmm, maybe that's why I don't tool leather either, never seen a basket weaved cow!

    Step out of your comfort zone - you know, make a oxblood colored sheath, fold your underwear, pick up the ice cube instead of kicking it under the fridge... ;)

    Everything I make is out of my comfort zone, that's why it takes so long!:eek: As far as folding my under wear goes, one doesn't simply 'fold' banana hammocks. The 5 second rule doesn't apply to ice cubes (Epitaph worthy?).

    (You will however be pleased to know that I started this thread after ordering a bottle of the stuff to mess with;))


    Little did I know how much gold was in that movie when I watched it!

    One of these days I'm going to work up the nerve to try some peyote. Maybe when I'm old and a burden on society:D. I can trip with the big chicken.
